For his art project Mikuriya Jin carved a statue from the recently chopped local sacred tree. As he is about to bring it to school, the goddess of the tree, Nagi, descends upon the statue, having slept until now, not knowing of her demise. Since the sacred tree can no longer protect the surrounding area from impurities, Nagi has to do it herself now, dragging poor Jin with her.

[::UPDATE::] December, 2015.
Chapter 59 scans translated.
[::UPDATE::] August, 2015.
Sorry guys, I'm flying blind here.
The only English scanlator I knew that was still doing this series had its last update with chapter 58 on March. Amazon.jp already have the 10th volume for sale, so I can only hope they translate that someday. It's a shame to have it incomplete, but if even Noboru's Zero no Tsukaima is now getting completed, I still have hope to see a closure to Jin and Nagi's tale.
Also, a little TL note, I wrote this review years ago, and years ago my vocabulary wasn't so great and honestly I was still read more

Manga: Kami Sen
Obvious similarities between the two series include: a male protagonist who summons a troublesome goddess; a childhood friend who oftentimes gets jealous; other female characters who begin to develop an attraction to the male protagonist as a result of circumstances involving the deity; and a light-hearted aesthetic typified by comedy and romance.

Manga: Inugami-hime no Shimobe
Romance titles featuring the male protagonist's fun yet troublesome relationship with a deity. 
reportRecommended by radiantfire
Manga: Ayakashi Hisen
In both series, there's a theme of exorcism that connects the overall tone of the story. There are spirits, ghosts, and even godly beings that are part of human society. Both series' main male protagonist has similar personalities and they become acquainted with many of peculiar events. Both series' setting has also a familiar feel in the modern ages such as Shinto shrines and temples. Recommended for fans interested in a modern fantasy.

Manga: Gan☆Kon
Despite GAN KON featuring action sequences, both series are light-hearted romantic comedies that feature a relationship between a male highschooler and a female deity. 
reportRecommended by radiantfire
Manga: Maga-Tsuki
Both not only involve goddesses entering the life of the male protagonists, but also feature harem and comedy cliches.

Manga: Yururizumu
Both involve a supernatural deity helping out others. Hints of romance are present throughout both series.
